GP Customs decks out automobiles with nonreflective and high-performance window tinting. The sleek solar films are available in a variety of colors and shades, working to improve energy costs by keeping cars' interiors cooler. And by blocking up to 98% of UV rays, the films can protect unnecessary wear to car upholstery, carpeting, and dashboard oil paintings of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. GP Customs also snazzes up cars with CD players and televisions by popular brands such as Clarion, Pioneer, and Panasonic.
From its boutique housed in a large, turn-of-the-century Lincoln home, Twice as Nice The Consignment Shoppe consigns and retails nearly any gently used item that might fit in a domicile or fashionable closet. The store brims with two stories' worth of goodies, ranging from shoes ($10+) and kitchen goods ($4+) to dresses ($19+) and jewelry ($4+). Pieces from popular apparel brands such as Kenneth Cole, Old Navy, and Coach vie for new parents, and lamps, wall art, couches, and other furnishings decorate the store, awaiting transplant into a welcoming home or discotheque.
Dressing up digits since 1905, Sartor Hamann employs a well-versed crew of registered jewelers and certified gemologists to adorn shoppers with a vast selection of sparkly stones and accessories. Swarovski Crystal figurines ($40+) replace shabby hood ornaments with geometric symphonies of light, and freshwater-pearl necklaces ($99) seek sanctuary from clamshell captors by elegantly clinging to safe-harbor necks. Sartor Hamann's own line of swiss watches ($150+) simultaneously pleases eyes and dissuades Captain Hook with beautifully crafted precision tuning. A panoply of 14-karat gold earrings ($50+) and engagement rings ($295+) awaits to illuminate romantic gestures. The Gemvision CAD system lets you create your own custom jewelry, bringing personalized bling to life like a laser-wielding Geppetto. The gargantuan showroom at Sartor Hamann’s newest Lincoln location on Pine Lake Road casts a glowing sheen over an impressive showcase of designer pieces, and the blisteringly bright array of engagement rings at the O Street location keeps emergency-apology supplies on hand following another disastrous weekend getaway to the cement museum.
